ABOUT BABY BEATRCE.
The Famous Hamilton Infant Now Cared for in New York City. Bhe sls in the Charge of Robert Ray's Exeoutor, Mr. Vollmer. Ample Provislon for Her in the WM Guesses at the Contents of That Doeumet. Baby Beatrice Hamilton passed last night in this city, and she will hereafter be cared for by the executors of the estate of Bobert Bay Hamilton, whose tragio death in the Yellowstone region recently ended a career replete with sensational episodes, says the New York World of Sept. 29. SAsn understanding was reached a few days ago by Gilbert M. Spier, Jr., one of the ex ecutors of Robert Bay Hamilton's estate. and Lawyer Joseph Kunsman, who had been counsel for Mr. Hamilton, that the terms of the will empowered them tore jmove the child from the care of Mrs. Rupp. of Philadelphia, and place her in a home In this city, where she may be brought up in a careful way and properly educated. On Saturday afternoon at three o'olock a carriage drove up to the house of Mrs. Howard BRupp at No. 464 Franklin street, Philadelphia, and from it alighted two men and a woman. They were evidently expect ed by Mrs. Rupp. who, opened the door. The' visitors soon reappeared, the woman -rrying the famous baby who, it is now said, inherits a large portion of the dead ex-aseemblyman's estate. .The two men, the woman and little Bea tries entered the carriage and were driven to the Broad street station of the Pennsyl vania railroad, where they took the four o'clok train for this city. Arriving at Jer sey City they entered a carriage and waere driven rapidly away. Who the woman was could not be learned yesterday, but the men wre said to be E. l Vollmer, a lawyer of this city, and Gilbert M. Speir, a life-long friend of Robert Ray Hamilton. The will of Robert Ray Hamilton has not yet been filed for probate, and will probably not be until the return of Edmund L. Bay lies, one of the executors. But the terms of the will are known to Mr. Speir, Mr. Kuns man and Mr. Vollmer, and their action in removing Beatrice to this city is said to be in accordance with Mr. Hamilton's last in struotions. That the baby will be well pro vided for by the will was not denied last night by one of the three men who know the condition of afaires and he even inti mated that a large portion of the estate will be held in trust for the child. The estate is largely of realty in this city and a ranchoon Snake Hill, Idaho, the income being esti mated at $18,000 a year. The World's authority for this story said to a reporter last night: "It is useless to look for the baby, as it will be a fraitless search. I will say this, however that you not be able to find any 'of the gentle men interested to-night, and I know you cannot fiAnd Mr. Vollmer in particular." Further than that he would not say, but his manner indicated stronger than words that baby Beatrice is under the proteo tion of Mr. Vollmer or a person of his e lection. Mr. Vollmer was for years the confi dential clerk of Robert .ay Hamilton. When Robert Ray Hamiltondecided to buy he Idaho ranch and go west be made Mr. Vollmer his attorney. Mr. Kgunman mere y had the care of legal matters pertaining to the suit in which Hamilton sought to annul his marriage to Evangeline Steele Hamilton, who is now in the Trenton jail win. out a two years' sentence for an assault on Mrs. Donnelly, the nurse of tric. The assault occurred at Noll cottage on ennessee avenue. Atlantio City, on Aug. 86,1887, and first brought into prominence the troubles of New York's ex assembly man. During the trial evidence was produced 'howing that baby Beatrice was not really the child of Robert Ray Hamilton, and that Mrs.Hamilton bought fourcehildren at an ar erage price of $10 each, but they either did not sane her purpose or had died. So Beatrice, it was said, was procured and lmed of on Mr. Hamilton as his heir. On Sept. 8 Robert Ray Hamilton made re. Howard Rupp, of Philadelphia, the ustodian of baby Beatrice. On that day rs. Rupp visited Mrs. Hamilton in the At antic City jail. She carried Beatrice, who as extravagantly dressed. On each of the tiny arms was clasped a bracelet of Etru-s can gol In the center of eaoh golden band blazed a solitare diamond. On the middle finer of the right hand the baby wore a ol ring, which was attaehed to the raeet by a finely wrought chain of deli pate workmanship. Herbaby robe was of he finest white silk. Mrs. Hamilton was in bed at the time of he visit, but Baby Beatrice was greted th every demonstration of motherly eo on. Subsequently, and about September Mrs. Rupp, who kept the boarding house tNoll cottge, went to live in Phildel is. "I bromuht this child with me," said Mrs. upp, at the time, "because Mr. Hamilton asked me to look after the baby at May's ding when his wife was convicted. I keep the baby until Mr. Hamilton tells what to do with her." I About October 1,1889, the law arm of Root & Clark began an action for Robert Ray Hamilton for the annulment of his lage to Eva L. Steele. The application as based on two ount as follows: (1) hat the woman had a husband at the time f her marriage to Hamilton; (2) that the arriage was obtained by fraud. It was a suit for divorce. The ase was in the hands of Referee Van Duzer, of Elmira, at time of the death of Mr. Hamilton, and that sad and tragic event raises a most un and odd question. "'Unless Eva Steele had a husband living t the time of her marriage to Robert Ray Hamilton," said Lawyer Abe "sheis to-day his widow and entitled to her dower. If he left no will she must receive her one-third of his real estate and one fat that her husband had the best for the annulment of the marriage, ano matter how eatthe rahud bywhbih t marriage was bro ht about, would not ter the ease in the lightestdegree. If fraud and conspiracy of the most damnable nd were proven and the judge was about Ipplng his pen in the ink for the nrose writig adrees annulling the m .i at that instant and before the judg time to afx his silanatuse, the sband die, the woman would remain his ela the sight of the law and would have ARTHUR P CURTIN'S_ S *.Mammoth Furniture House * VISITORS ".

As it is now tacitly agreed that Robert Ray Hamilton acknowledged Beatrice as hit child and heir, the question is, to what extent will the baby be cared for by the will? That Robert Ray Hamilton loved the baby is an undoubted fact. He regularly sent allowances for the child, and the last Chidatmas he sent her two small turquoise pina and two picture books. At the same time he sent a letter to Mrs. Rupp inquir ing after the healthof the baby and request ing her to give the child the best of care. Just before he left for the west he again went to Philadelphia to see the child. When he left he told Mrs. Rupp that he would be back again in the fall to see her and the baby. -I 4-' UEs uIvOHED WITE InuuuUI TO THE DNA; -rud,1 all the way on oot ver mountain - 'and ughm orapeso and aug, ht cold. from the es of which his en thouht he would never recover.
